Over the years, we’ve seen more than a few Robin Hood movies and television series, but we’re about to see another, with Kingsman star Taron Egerton in the title role.
The upcoming Robin Hood movie promises to be very different from previous films, with director Otto Bathurst finding an all-star cast. Egerton will portray Robin Hood, Jamie Foxx as Little John, Ben Mendelsohn as the Sheriff of Nottingham and Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck. In a new interview with Screen Rant, Egerton discussed his Robin Hood movie and discussed how the film will be unique compared to the Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe versions.
See what Egerton said below:
“I think it will be less self-reverential than the Robin Hoods that have come before. I think the problem with Robin Hood sometimes is that… I love the Kevin Costner one and I think there were some great moments in the Russell Crowe one as well, but they’re very, very, very ‘Robin Hood-y’. Ours is less Robin Hood-y. It’s grittier, it’s darker, it’s a Robin Hood for the 21st Century. If you’ve seen Peaky Blinders, you’ll know something of the tone of it as it’s the same director.”
Robin Hood will land in theatres in 2018!
